Title from here! (Hence the gray shirt…)

Hello anyone reading this!

As the weeks go by, the deadline for our final comic slowly creeps closer and the time for decisions is upon us…

While the idea of doing a dramatic art or monomyth for my final comic was very tempting, I had not really considered going another route. So when Dr. Dru was lecturing about kishōtenketsu  as an option, I knew I had found my niche.

While I do enjoy the action driven story lines, I feel like my comic will be focused more on a character-driven plot. I think it would definitely be interesting to explore the “slice-of-life” aspect that comes with this kind of story structure and something that will be (hopefully) both challenging and enjoyable. Thus far, I have decided that the comic will center around some sort of mundane (as mundane as the supernatural can get) tasks that my werewolf character, Kieran, goes about. So below I have included some sketches of how I am hoping to draw him in my comic, as well as a little sketchy possible idea of the comic itself. Color-wise, I think I will keep him with more of a brighter skin-tone like the colored right doodle than the lighter version on the left.

Has anyone else thought about doing a kishōtenketsu-based comic as well?

p.s. If anyone was curious, I used some copic markers to color, as well as a prismacolor brushpen and a pentel aqua brush filled with sumi ink to line! :-)
